Clay Hill Potters is a club. We are a group of amateur potters and ceramic users.

Many of us at one time attended pottery classes at the Five Acres College near Berry Hill, Coleford.

Some ten years ago the College closed their pottery course and we were in the fortunate position

to be able to buy the equipment from them. We transported all this across the Forest of Dean

to a barn near Newnham on Severn. We not only brought the kilns, wheels, pug mills, cabinets,

tables, chairs, but we hired our teacher Joan Doherty too. So now we run our own classes and

continue to learn how to make pots under Joan's instruction.

We use many types of clay including, stoneware, earthenware, porcelain and crank.

Sometimes we have a raku firing and for that we try to have a party.

Or next project might be to build a wood fired soda kiln.

The gas kiln is finished.

Many of our members also seem to be very good cooks.

We have been fortunate to have been given demonstrations by some professional potters, such as

Alistair Young , Mark Melbourne, Jack Doherty, Wally Keeler, Phil Rogers , Patia Davis , Paul Stubbs , and John Jelfs

In the summer of 2011 we were able to make our facilities available to a Owen Maseko a visiting potter from Zimbabwe.
